Beautiful Sunny day in New Hampshire

So the last two days have been a dream. Yesterday was fifty and today was almost sixty degrees! That is very warm for this time of year. I had today off so I spend some time with the animals. I groomed Gizmo up nice and took some pics of him. Unfortunately, it wasn't warm enough to melt all the ice so I didn't want to take him out. I barely had good footing so I know he wouldn't for sure. Oh and sorry about the messy pen, melting snow+melting ice+ mudd+poo+pee= BIG MESS. That is hard to keep up with, that was after cleaning it out TWICE today! So here are the pictures :) The first is my dog Shadow.

He is a full blooded QH actually. He is big though almost 16 hands. But he is my baby who is very spoiled!

He's cute! I love your avatar with him! That is one messy pen, but you really don't have much of a choice with the weather..
I'd tie him up and get a shovel and get out as much as I could..and then pour down shavings I guess?

Yeah, that was with the second time cleaning it too. It is much better now.

Friday it was 60F out here too!! Now we have a whiteout and 3 inches of snow again :-(

I enjoyed the warm weather and so did he. He is for sure a warm weather horse. He doesn't like the white stuff too much. We had it just those couple of days and now it was about 16 degrees today and we had a dusting early this morning, but EVERYTHING! Is ice! I sucks so bad I can't go riding at all and he hates it, his pen is not meant for him to be cooped in because it is small. We are making it bigger in the spring. I took him for a walk but we trugged in the snow which is still up to my knees in the field, even with the warm weather. I am going to get some easy boots though with studs so that we can, he loves to ride and I do too, I can't wait it out til the end of March. Some people around here don't even ride in the winter! I don't know how they do it, then have to deal with a spirited, out of shape horse in the spring.

Yes they are. He just stands there in the sun soaking it up, with a blanket on! He is a goof ball. I love his little crooked blaze. I told him if he were human he would be a dorky kid, he would just need glasses, lol. I know I can't wait to start doing different braids in it when it gets nice and I can wash it out really nice. I use Cowboy Magic detangler and it works awesome. It really makes the gold in it stand out and shine. :D
